The hotel is quite nice bur Blbad breakfast (will never forget that bad chemical fruit juice), noisy room on deluxe category, unfriendly staff, got some money stolen by cleanning services when went for breakfast. You can definitely get better for the same money in Istanbul.

It was 30 minutes walk to Sultanahment and 30 minutes walk to Taksim. We never took a Tram or Metro during our stay. We could walk... More

Great service! Lovely room, good food. Really enjoyed the stay. It's right near the tram and train station which is perfect for getting to the airport and the centre of the old city. The budgies were lovely. Didn't get to have a Turkish bath, but that also looked like it would be great.
